It is not about the walk and the sunny day but about the diligence put forth by the ancients in order to create this such a magnificient view for us to enjoy in the present day.

I hired a tricycle from Banaue square for 700 pesos and did this in 4 hours including many stops and a short trek on the terraces. The terraces are different to Batad, not being in an amphitheatre, but are nearly as breathtaking. There are various viewpoints of terraces along the way but the pick is the 'spider web' about 90...

I thought that the best terraces were in Batad but I was proven wrong by Hapao. This one is wider, larger and better-looking. It also offers an easier trek than Batad. At the end of the trek, one is rewarded by the soothing water of the Hapao Hot Springs. Take the longer route on the way back that takes you... More

Walk around and climb up the rice terraces to see a better view and then, soothe yourself with the hot spring in the area. It will make the hike more memorable.

One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ifugao. Boasts of a long valley of rice terraces with a distinct outline of rice paddies. It is the jump off of Mt Napulauan. At the end of the terraces is the refreshing Bogyah Hot Spring. In the middle of the ricefield is a clean gushing river. Getting there, you may opt... More

The place itself is beautiful, serene, and delightful to the senses. I recommend trekking to the hot springs and cooling off in the river. Just be wary of the tourist information ladies at the muncipal tourist registration spot. They make you pay PhP 100.00/group as registration fee, which is fine. But they also tell you that you need to book... More

This is a special places. It is not as visited so there is a calmness and quiet that is very special. Spend time just taking in the unique beauty of the terraces.
